They're really pushing the Slade/Batman conflict pretty hard with the marketing of "Arkham Origins," this October's prequel to Warner Brother's pair of "Arkham" games. Even if the initial announcement out of the publisher was that Black Mask would be the main heavy, one-eyed super assassin Deathstroke has been the one featured most prominently up to this point.
Which is weird, because he's better known for spending his time trying to murder the Teen Titans.
Indie developer Coffee Stain Studios today released "Sanctum 2" for PC and Xbox 360. The follow-up to the team's first tower-defense, first-person shooter hybrid sees players taking on the role of an elite soldier whose been tasked with protecting oxygen-producing cores from hordes of alien attackers.

~~Life is like a hurricane/ Here in Duckburg
~~Race cars, lasers, aeroplanes/ It's a duck-blur
~~Might solve a mystery Or rewrite history
~~DuckTales! OOH OOH
--Whoa -- sorry, I got a bit carried away as I've been humming that song for the last few hours after having played a few minutes of the upcoming and HD-ified Capcom classic, "DuckTales." Now titled "DuckTales Remastered" Capcom celebrates their 30th anniversary with one of their most beloved games. Read More...
The new trailer for "Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag" gives us a little bit of the pirate captain's origin story as he rejects his British masters for a life on the high seas, stealing stuff and shooting at the Navy.
The creators of Cartoon Network's "Adventure Time" don't bury the series' 8-bit inspirations too deep: it's not uncommon for the series to play with the tropes of classic dungeon crawlers as animated hero Finn goes on whatever monster-slaying, treasure-hunting quest is set before him that week, set to a chiptune soundtrack. The season 5 episode "Mystery Dungeon" plays with these elements well, putting a mismatched group of the show's side characters together for an unexpected, stupid journey.
Anyway, that's all to say that D3 Publisher's announcement of their second "Adventure Time" game is a welcome one. Instead of going handheld as they did with the "Zelda II"-like "Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d You Steal Our Garbage?!," this fall's "Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW!" will be headed to consoles and the PC.
I have, in all likelihood, straight-up merked untold thousands of humanoid enemies over the course of my digital career, but I've never really felt comfortable blasting away at animals.

Hey, remember when 2K Marin announced a new XCOM game way back in 2010 and everyone got super excited about defending Earth against a new alien threat via a three-quater tactical view? Remember how when they said it would be a first person shooter instead and all those excited fans got really upset that it had been "dumbed down" for the masses of COD kiddies? What we saw during that 2010 E3 was a mixed bag for some and for most accounts 2K Marin has been mum about any details -- so much so that fans got tossed a quick but really fantastic (seriously it was our GOTY for 2012) franchise entry as "XCOM: Enemy Unknown" to keep some of the hardcore fans satiated. Well, a lot can change in three years and what may have been another mediocre shooter clone got altered into a tactical third person shooter blending elements from "XCOM: EU" and "Mass Effect" set during the Cold War.
